Following recognition in 2013 of the company’s Indigenous Program, with the Queensland Premier’s Reconciliation Award (Community), Queensland Theatre’s Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) was launched on 23 March, 2015 by Artistic Director Wesley Enoch, with a vision that goes beyond words in the hope of creating lasting change.
The RAP is the first of its kind for a state theatre company in Australia and is about creating change within the organisation, the community, the sector, and Queensland and Australia more broadly.
“With the key objectives of Relationships, Respect and Opportunities, it sets out a range of strategies around our artistic programs, audience development, employment pathways, partnerships and cultural awareness,” Mr Enoch said. “We aim to be a national leader in reconciliation, demonstrating this through the creation and presentation of theatre as well as meaningful action, how true reconciliation can be achieved between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and the broader community,” he said.
